built a sweet tie rod cheap
After my Kabooom in Azusa I started doing some maintenance. Ive been running my stock TRE's and finally replaced them..... well in the process i destroyed my big daddy tie rod. I sheared the TRE in half with 70 percent of the threads still in the tie rod....

Sooooo Jason and I built this. 11/4" 4130 chormoly. .120 wall. all tig welded McKenzies supplied the threaded sleaves that the TRE's thread into. grabbed some jam nuts and kabooom here she is.

here she is all pretty and installed

I spent 60 bucks on metal. the TRE's are stock replacements from moog.

Jerry your gonna like that currie steering its beefy.

I hope so, every time I come back I have to realign the stock one and repace ends ,I know some jeepspeed guys that run them on their racers and havent had to fix any thing. I get to try it out this weekend in Ocotillo Wells :D
